secretary hasn't missed a beat. she knows that the calling card of the democrats in the barack obama era is a polarizing politics that seeks to fire up minority voters by stirring fears of fire hoses and police dogs. its basic vocabulary is imputations of racism. its evidentiary standard is low and dishonest. and its ethic is whatever works so long as it stirs fear, anger, and resentment. get ready for hope and change 2.0. gene robinson, respond to both of those. >> well, number one, the only people i hear talking about fire hoses and police dogs are republicans. what i hear democrats saying is these are measures that are going to reduce african-american participation in elections. they're not talking about fire hoses. they're not talking about police dogs. that's sort of a red herring that keeps getting brought up on the other side to discredit what i consider legitimate arguments against these laws. second, i think in terms of hillary clinton we should acknowledge two possibilities. number one, she is laying the groundwork for a run for president in 2016. number two that this is someth

for watching us tonight. the biggest failure of the obama administration that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. in order for more than 300 million americans to have a chance at prosperity, you need a vibrant economy. at this point the usa does not have one. that is now on president obama. as you may know, the president's economic vision is focused on so-called economic justice, giving help to americans who don't have very much, providing vast entitlements means big spending and taxation. the president doesn't seem to trust the capitalist civic, instituting new regulations in the marketplace, inhibiting business expansion. the social justice economic plan is failing. the u.s. economy is stagnant, thus quality of life is going down in this country. here are the facts to back that statement up. 7 out of 8 jobs created during the obama administration have been part time jobs. 54% of american workers make less than $30,000 a year. when mr. obama took office, he averaged unemployment paid to an individual was 20 weeks. now it's 37 weeks. number of americans who have stopped loo

a tendency to think of another author, and that author is president barack obama. as you may recall, the liberal media raved about barack obama's writing abilities in the 2008 election. back then, senator obama's resumÉ was really quite short, and his supporters said, with a straight face, that he was just marvelous because he wrote two books about himself. at first, i thought this was some kind of a joke. when senator obama became president obama, i realized that it was no joke at all, and i decided that i seriously needed to get with the program and start believing in the dreamy barack obama world of yes, we can. i thought what i needed to do was write two books about myself -- [laughter] maybe, i, too, can be president of the united states. [applause] so i sat down and wrote a book about myself called "chinese girl in the ghetto," and when people ask what the book is about these days, i politely tell them it's about my family's journey of communism china to inner city california, and it's about my journey of getting to know freedom, but what i'm really thinking, usually, what's

july, 2008. some communication that the irs and fec are having. this predates president obama's november 2008 election. does that signal to you that at least it doesn't go as high as the white house? he wasn't even president then. >> it may. what we do know is there is communication going on that's not appropriate. it's about a question that should be totally dealt with in the internal re new service. that's what most concerns us. if it is referencing something before then, lois lerner worked at the federal elections commission before the irs. maybe she goes -- she's concerned about this. but the point is there is coordination. at least what appears to be coordination between two federal agencies. >> in terms of the response you want, you want the response back by august 21? >> last week, i had a chance in committee to question acting commissioner dan warfall and i said why don't we have all of learn er's e-mails today? it seems the first thing you would have done as commissioner is send us all her e-mails. who's she been talking to? she took the 5th. if you want to, as the pr
